The purpose of NIDILRR's Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects (DRRPs) is to achieve the goals of, and improve the effectiveness of, services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act, by generating new knowledge, or developing methods, procedures, and rehabilitation technologies that advance a wide range of health and function, community living, and employment outcomes among people with disabilities, especially people with disabilities who have the greatest support needs. Under this particular DRRP priority, the grantee must conduct research toward new knowledge of the school experiences and outcomes among elementary or secondary students who have 504 plans. These formal plans protect the rights of children with disabilities under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, by giving them the accommodations, supports, or services they need in school.
